Is it true that the Tinkerboard will fit in any Raspberry Pi 3 case? Thanks

allegedly yes, since I don't own one, nor plan to use one (Waste of money if you ask me Smile)

The layout of the board / dimensions are the same as a rpi3 so I don't see why not.
"Most" raspberry pi 3 cases will be fine.
Connectors are all in the same place, but the large heatsink on the tinker board may cause problems with some
E.g I doubt the pibow case would fit.
Cases don't have to be expensive. I have a transparent ABS case from thru my local re-seller but see same case is also available from for US$2

I originaly looked at the Flirc Pi3 case but soon realized that the CPU is located further down the board and so it would not fit. I also saw that a composite case like the one shown 4 min in to this vid did not fit, so you probably want to avoid cases like this

This vid also shows another clear case that fits -
Pibow wont fit the tinkerboard. The Original Official Raspberry pi case (the one that came out around the RPI2) - The only issue is that it doesn't sit perfectly with the plastic standoffs on the base of the case, i think this is due to the light pipes for the LEDs on the RPI2 just catchingbut it's close enough.

Cyntech & modmypi case (again the one circa the RPI2) should also fit but I've not yet tried it.
Official Pi 3 cases fit fine (mine is in one now) .. only about £9 from EBay ....
I had to cut some plastic out to fit the heatsink on my pi case, but you can't see it once the top is on.
